Explore Modern Architecture on the Toronto Islands

The Toronto Islands may have suffered some flooding this year, but you can still take the ferry over to see the Toronto Islands’ modern architecture. In Chris Bateman’s Spacing article, ‘The Story of the Toronto Island’s modern architecture’, Chris explores these modern buildings dotting the Islands. “Among the first new structures built on the Toronto Island were a set of picnic pavilions and concession stands designed by architects Venchiarutti & Venchiarutti. Prior to being hired to work on the Island, Venchiarutti & Venchiarutti designed Colony Plaza, the strip mall at Lawrence and Warden Avenues where Tim Horton first gave his name to a donut shop.”
